National recognition of your prior formal learning

What is national recognition?

National recognition is the acknowledgement of previous learning completed through formal education and training. This may include superseded Units of Competency (UoC) that have undergone a name or number change, but are still equivalent to the current UoC in terms of learning outcomes and performance criteria. See for more information on each UoC. Note that providing credit for previous studies is not recognition of prior learning (RPL). RPL is an assessment-only pathway of determining the competence of a person, while providing credit is recognising the equivalence in content and learning outcomes between different types of learning and/or qualifications previously undertaken and completed successfully.
